Historic Fulshear (TX) Cemeteries Program, October 18

 FYI: this press release for a local program of interest for the Houston-area genealogy community. The Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library is part of the Fort Bend County Library System.

Cemeteries can be a wonderful source for local history. Stories and clues about a town's early days and the people who settled the area can be gleaned from gravestones and historical markers that provide a glimpse into the past. Hear about the Fulshear-area's history at a special program, "Fulshear's Final Resting Places,"  at the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library on Thursday, October 18, beginning at 6:30 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 8100 FM 359 South in Fulshear.

Ken Stubbe, a member of the Fort Bend Historical Commission, will talk about the historical Fulshear cemeteries, including where they are located, who is buried in them, and the stories behind their origination. Learn about what can be done to help preserve these repositories of local history.

Stubbe has been a member of the historical commission since 2011, and was part of the team that got the Fulshear Black Cemetery designated as a historical site.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the branch library at 281-633-4675 or the library's Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
